Default Mop Top Products - on the way, need advice...

Hi,

I just ordered the Mop Top sampler from Curlmart & then added the pomade (did not come w/ the sampler). Just wondering if anyone has had luck with these products. Hoping the gel has a nice hold without crunch. All are cone & alcohol free which really sold me! I also enjoyed reading the story of the creator of the product line - how she is a curlie who dealt with unruly hair all her life. It's just too bad they only sell this stuff online. At least I do not know where I can buy them here in NY.

So my question is, what is the best way to use the products? Can the conditioner be used as a leave-in? Does the gel give any crunch?

Thanks & happy holidays!!!

I use the gel. I have pretty good hair with it and not much crunch. My only problem is it sometimes fades out so my 2nd day hair isn't that good.

Looove their conditioner. Haven't tried anything else yet though.

And Kelly Foreman, the Mop Top creator, is such an incredible person. She has amazing curls herself, and the most adorable curly daughter.

She does seem like a nice person from reading about her - again, I am so happy that the products are cone & alcohol free. Just hoping they are not too good to be true! I have not been loving my hair lately.

I'd love to hear more about how to use the gel. It was super-crunchy on me and gave me stringy waves. It also flaked like mad so maybe I used too much.

Should I be using a cream/leave-in under it? I just used CK under it when I tried it.

I think I get crunch from CK - so I would probably have to use a leave-in condish under this gel. I'm hoping that their conditioner can be used as a leave-in.
